Question about Sharp Actius AL27 Notebook

2 Answers

Sharp Actius AL27 strange DVD burning problem - The drive will burn a DVD+RW at 4x. A cheap (Imation) DVD+R burns OK, but a good 16X DVD+R (Verbatim) tries to burn at 2x and fails a few minutes in. This happens in Nero and all other burning software.: Here is the Nero log: Windows XP 5.1 IA32 WinAspi: - ahead WinASPI: File 'C:Program FilesAheadNeroWnaspi32.dll': Ver=2.0.1.59, size=160016 bytes, created 12/16/2003 8:18:06 PM Nero API version: 6.3.1.10 Using interface version: 6.3.1.4 Installed in: C:Program FilesAheadNero Application: aheadNero - Burning Rom Recorder: Version: 1.00 - HA 1 TA 0 - 6.3.1.10 Adapter driver: HA 1 Drive buffer : 2048kB Bus Type : via Inquiry data (1) -> ATAPI, detected: ATAPI Connected to MMC as unknown drive with class-nr : 1 Drive is autodetected - recorder class: Std.

    Neither Sharp nor Matshita has ever posted any update on firmware or drivers for this ultra-cheap OEM DVD drive. (This and the worthless battery are my only complaints with the machine)

    And I have tried every possible speed and the Verbatim disk fails on all speeds. The idea that "slower is better" for DVD burning may sound logical, but isn't really true anyway.

    And before anyone else suggests it, I've dealt with the upper and lower filters issue already.


  • danebennet Jun 17, 2009

    It is obvious the person writing the second (garbled) "solution" didn't even read the problem description or he would have seen that I was not trying to burn at 16X (and this drive doesn't support that anyway).

    I was trying to burn at 4x (which worked for the previous disk) and it appears to fail because it is trying to burn TOO SLOW, not too fast.

    In my opinion this "solution" is worse than useless because not only does it not relate to my problem, but it also perpetuates the MYTH that burning at the slowest possible speed is always the best bet.


  • danebennet Jun 17, 2009

    Thanks RescueTechLA for the suggestion, but I've already scoured rpc1 and looked at CDfreaks. RPC1 discussions had many people asking about this, but no solutions given, and the focus there seemed to be on region codes, which don't concern me at all.

    One thing that I don't understand is why Nero referred to the device as "MCC" which is the disk code. Any idea if that is the issue?

    Maybe I can find some castoff cheap 8x disks somewhere, but it is so strange that Verbatim 16x is the one that fails (and disks from the same spindle burn fine on other machines)

Most of the time you can fix this problem by updating the drive's firmware. Check Sharp's support page for the download and instructions.

Let me know what happens.

    Errr.......well I'd try the rpc1.org forums for this problem or cdfreaks.

    I had a similar issue with one my drives, I never found a solution to the problem other than using different recording media.

    Best of luck!

    Hmmm....not sure. Sometimes it has to do with DMA being enabled...you might want to check those settings.

    Check out this program.

    It's very similar to Everest but it's free. It's handy tool for troubleshooting.

    Best of luck!

Hello my samsung sh-s182 dvd -+rw doual very slow burn nor456@yahoo.com


First look and see the write speed of the drive. 1x to 4x is slow but recommended by all programs and this is initially the default settings for most programs. You must goto the settings of your dvd burning program and set the burn rate to 16x or higher.

I only can write with 4x maximum while dvd could


DVD burners will only write to the maximum stated.

Also if you are using 4x DVDs then that is all they will burn at without often giving errors when used.

Trying to burn a 4x DVD at lets say 16x can cause burn failure or data corruption.

Cd's on the other hand can burn at lower speeds than they are stated.

To burn DVDs at higher speeds your burner needs to be capable of that speed

HR 720 does not burn to DVR -R media


Hallo everybody,

this guy "mysus" is a genius! I have had above problem on a Samsung HR-725 (160 Gb Version of the HR-720) now for approx. 1 year. I´ve called the Samsung Hotline and tried other dealers - nothing worked. Today I came accross this help and tried it out immediately - and it works perfectly. However, you do need to know a little about PCBs and electronics.
I used a variety of different -R DVDs and they all seem to work now. Many thanks once again for this fantastic link.

Problems recording DVD-R 16X


Try this download page to update your firmware from 25/10/05, so if you bought your writer before this date maybe this will work, otherwise buy 8x discs. http://sony.storagesupport.com/dvdrw/firmware.htm#710 The faster the discs are burned the more chance of errors there are, you should write at slower speeds for better quality.
